Navan cycling campaigners call for fewer shared areas on Ratoath Pedestrian and Cycle Scheme

Navan cycling campaigners have welcomed the plan for the Ratoath Pedestrian and Cycle Scheme, but have called for fewer shared areas where people cycling are mixed with pedestrians as well as motorists on different sections.

Public consultation on the project ends today — details can be found on Meath County Council’s website.

...I'm sorry to disrupt you while you're reading this article, but without messages like this,'s reader-funded journalism won't survive. With nearly 1/2 million views and 300k readers so-far this year, it's not just people who are dedicated to cycling that this website reaches. However, the number of subscribers is around 0.6% of readers. While having a large gap between readers/subscribers is standard for non-paywall reader-supported journalism, IrishCycle's journalism needs more support. Don't delay, support monthly or yearly today.

...That's the end of the article. Keep scrolling if you want to the comments, but *NEEDS* readers like you to keep it that way. It only requires a small percentage of readers to give a bit each month or every year to keep's journalism open to all. Thank you.
